In this bizarre account of a small team of ecommerce retailers struggling to sell their range of pet supplies on their PAWS website, MEAT EATERS is a fluorescent and disturbed comedy about cruelty.

The play sinks its fangs into a full kennel of hairy questions, including: the ethics of eating meat, the dark side of human nature and, most importantly, what it might be like to date a dog.

It’s a cerebral, surreal and sometimes simply silly comedy that tickles your funny bone before slugging a hammer into your rib cage.

MEAT EATERS was first developed through Sydney Theatre Company's Rough Draft program. It premiered at NIDA directed by Kate Champion in 2019.
